Lyrics
A Thousand Pieces

There’s a bottle on the side of the road
That somebody threw
I know it won’t be very long
It will be very soon

It will crash
It will smash
To a thousand pieces and run in my shoe
And I go boo-hoo boo-hoo

There’s a light bulb on the side of the road
That somebody lost
Looks look it won’t last very long
It will surely get crushed

It will crash
It will smash
To a thousand pieces and run in my shoe
And I go boo-hoo boo-hoo

A Thousand Pieces
"To a thousand pieces" (sung like Dylan if he had a sense of humor). It's about time somebody captured the inevitable and tragic fate of abandoned bottles and light bulbs in a song. I like the fun and light feel of this. The whistling adds to the fun. There's an element of children's music in this.

Whistlin' Armbruster
This is my kind of Lavalamp tune.

Love the whistlin and the clever lyrics. I know that for now on, whenever I see a bottle on the side of the road, I will think of you - boo hoo hoo boo hooo!

Thanks Dave for another fave and another download. I need a bigger iPod!

i love the sound of breaking glass
sure is a upbeat tune to break glass by. especially the whistle while you work on breaking glass.

hey, i also checked out your VU cover at icomp. i think that song was written for you. only a few decades early.

Never short of inspiration
if you can find it here Dave ;) This has touches of McCartney writing for Ringo - not sure that's a good thing, but it's meant as a compliment!
Cheers from Oz,

Crackin' Good Dave!
It's nice to see there's always a place for your unbridled silliness and endless supply of creativity and spontaneity.Would make a great sound bed for a don't litter type commercial;"cue the king toe with the embedded glass shard".

So much fun
A beautifully crafted silly song. Won't even try to find a deep metaphor in it: that's not the idea right?
The 2 guitars slightly out of tune one with the other, the ooah oohas, the whistling, the lyrics, the mouse clicks, a couple of unexpected chord twists... man, I just love it.
